How has austerity impacted on health and wellbeing in the UK? Health in hard times explores its repercussions for social inequalities in health. The result of five years of research, the book draws on a case study of the town of Stockton-on-Tees in northeastern England, home to some of the UK’s starkest health divides. By placing individual and local experiences in the context of national budget cuts and welfare reforms, it provides a holistic perspective on countrywide inequalities.
